Families who swear by a Sunday walk will be in their element in Farlington and Bedhampton as you don’t need to look far to find some exquisite natural beauty.

“With a superb location on the lower slopes of Portsdown Hill, Farlington and Bedhampton have a wonderful and virtually uninterrupted outlook across open land to Langstone Harbour and the Farlington Marshes nature reserve, giving them a wonderful rural feel despite their urban setting,” explains Colin Shairp, director, Town and Country Southern estate agents. “The location and outlook, with the open land to the front, makes Farlington unique in the area,” says Colin. “While Bedhampton is an older part of the Portsmouth and Havant conurbation with some really interesting older properties,” he says.

The properties are a varied mix of old and new plus some very special detached family homes.

“The area is dominated by 1930s style houses, the ones that have great appeal due to their traditional links with prosperity – they were originally built for higher paid professionals and that image has been retained,” describes Colin. According to Town and Country prices start at around £275,000 but average at about £358,000.

“At the top end, around £500,000 to £550,000 buys a really interesting house, such as an Arts and Crafts influenced property currently on the market,” Colin adds.

Busy families are also well catered for in Farlington and Bedhampton as there’s excellent schooling in the area and local amenities.

The areas also boast convenient transport links providing an easy commute for workers heading to London or if you just fancy a day out at the beach, head along the coastline.

“Plus the A3 gives fast access to the north and the South Downs National Park while the A27/M27 make it easy to travel to Chichester and its theatre and shops or along the Solent coast to some wonderful marinas,” says Colin.
